way to a safer venue after protesters attacked the u.s. consulate in benghazi and opened fire. the violence in protest to that amateur online film produced in the u.s. that offended millions and millions of muslims. first, we want to bring in elise labott. she has known ambassador stevens for ten years. she works at the state department for us. elise this is a tragedy for the entire diplomatic community this morning. >> yes, yes. john, this is a terrible day for the state department. everyone is going to be in mourning today. it's not just the fact that chris stevens was such a popular figure of the state department. really, one of the cream of the crop of the u.s. foreign service. but it's been many years since someone of this level has been killed in an attack like this. so i think there's going to be a lot of shockwaves through the state department. after all the u.s. has done for the libyans. using force to get rid of moammar gadhafi, to help libya stand up as it moved towards elections, as it tries to start anew. i think there's going to be a lot of gut checking right now
we are day two now of protests. we've been covering the protests in cairo and in benghazi. we remember covering the revolution, it was really the rebel stronghold last year. explain what exactly happened as far as this ambassador is concerned and the three other workers who were apparently with him in his car? >> details are very sketchy right now. what we understand is we knew yesterday, towards the end of the day, that as we were watching those pictures at the embassy in cairo, there were gunmen that had approached the u.s. consulate in benghazi, and breached the walls of the compound. and they were trying to secure the compound, secretary clinton put out a statement early this morning that one u.s. foreign service officer was killed. what we can piecing together, and again there hasn't been state department confirmation of the details, is that they were trying to take chris stevens, the ambassador, to libya, who is based in tripoli, i might add, and some other personnel out to safety, and there was a rocket attack and they were killed. >> you were mentioning before that the
believe to be a terrorist act, against our consulate in benghazi on the 11th anniversary of the attacks of september 11. these attacks do many things, but they remind us i think first of the bravery and commitment of government officials who serve in countries around the world, supporting the struggles of people in those countries, to live free. and by doing so work to improve our own national security. the attack in libya also reminds us that even though the core of al qaeda has been seriously weakened, we still face threats from an evolving and fractious set of terrorist groups and individuals united by a common ideology which is that of haven't -- violent islamist extremism. i'll have some questions to ask the three of you about the nature of the terrorist threat today and specifically with regard to the reaction to this film whether you think it has raised the threat level against any places or institutions or individuals here in the united states. reporting to us on the terrorist threat to the homeland today, i also hope you'll address other concerns such as the effort to counter h
correspondent arwa damon in benghazi. also joining us david ignatius, the columnist for "the washington post." david, let me start with you. you have some information, fascinating and intriguing information that the attack on the consulate may have been linked to al qaeda operatives in libya as a revenge plot. what exactly are you hearing? >> wolf, i heard from a source who has good sources on the ground in the libyan underground that the talk there was that the attack on the u.s. consulate that killed our ambassador stevens on september 11 last week was conceived as by the people who did it, an act of revenge to retaliate for the drone attack that killed a key al qaeda operative and planner. i ran that yesterday by a u.s. intelligence official who said that although some of the elements that i'd heard did not check out that they had heard the same thing. they'd heard this talk of revenge for the killing as a motive for the attack on the consulate in benghazi. so the u.s. government has been hearing the same thing that i picked up from my source. >> that would seem to suggest, david, i'm goi

last night, the night of september 11, militants fired a rocket in a the u.s. consulate in benghazi, killing ambassador stevens, and three other americans. tonight, they are being remembered. we have team coverage. ken wayne says the pentagon is already taking action, but we begin at uc berkely and a candlelight vigil at stevens old fraternity. >> reporter: that vigil just wrapped up about a half hour ago. these students did not know stevens, but they were inspired by his life. tonight, they lit candles in his honor, and projected a photo of stevens on the side of the house, for a man people say had great dreams and a good heart. >> my name is chris stevens, and i'm the new u.s.ambassador to libya. >> reporter: this video shows him introducing himself last may. before stevens left the u.s., he spoke with steven browning. >> very earnest, and somewhat humbled by the task was about to undertake. i think he was very conscious of the enormity of the task. >> reporter: it was a dream come true for the bay area native. >> he was just a great, all around guy. one of those guys from school
states. at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya's second largest city, at least one american staff member was killed after gunmen stormed the compound and burned it down. we've got some amateur video here into nbc news from the scene. if you listen, you can hear gunshots going off in the background. witnesses say the attackers were armed with automatic rifles, rpgs. libyan forces stationed there said to have little to stop the violence. >>> in neighboring cairo, angry protesters scaled the fortified walls of the u.s. embassy, destroyed the american flag and replaced it with a black islamic banner. most of the u.s. diplomatic staff had already been evacuated in anticipation of this protest. both incidents reportedly are reaction to a little-known amateur movie produced in the united states which ridiculed the prophet mohammed. it gained attention because an obscure florida pastor began promoting it, the same man who triggered deadly riots in afghanistan when he threatened to burn the koran. we want to go straight to cairo where we find nbc chief foreign correspondent, richard engel.
. jenna: new political fallout from the president's handling of the attack in benghazi that left four americans dead. we should say four americans murdered. senator lindsey graham joins us live with his take how this story has developed. >>> horrifying accounts as a gunman opens fire at a minneapolis office. five people are dead. the latest on a devastating workplace shooting. >>> plus, the investigation into the cause of a fiery plane crash that killed 19 people. it's all new, it's all live. it's "happening now." jenna: and we start with some politics. topping the news at this hour the race for the white house and brand new polls from three key battleground states. we're glad you're with us on this friday, everybody. i'm jenna lee. gregg: i'm gregg jarrett in for john -- jon scott. we're looking at brand new poll numbers that the fight for president obama and mitt romney remains close days away from the first presidential debate. "wall street journal" marist poll showing the president has a seven point edge in new hampshire and smaller two point lead in north carolina and nevada. tha
a handwritten sign that said "thugs and killers do not represent a benghazi or islam." the president of the palestinian authority, who worked closely with chris sent me a letter of remembering his energy and integrity and deploring "an act of ugly terror." many others from across the middle east and africa have offered similar sentiments. this has been a difficult week for the state department's and for our country. we have seen the heavy assault on our post in benghazi bad took lives of those brave men. we have seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do it. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that because it is senseless. it is totally unacceptable. the people of egypt, libya, yemen, and tunisia did not trade the tyranny of the dictator for the tyranny of a mob. reasonable people and responsible leaders in these countries need to do everything they can to restore security and hold accountable those behind these violent acts. we will, under the president's leadership, keep taking steps to protect our pe
to benghazi. the president of libya has just talked to charlie. what's he saying? >> reporter: well, good morning to you. just returned from the u.s. consulate where we did meet with the president of the libyan national council. he confirmed four arrests have been made. he's confident there will be more. you're confident the men behind the, the people behind this will be caught. why? what makes you so confident. >> because everyone is determined to. >> reporter: everyone is determined to. how far identified the group responsible for this? >> too early. >> reporter: have you made move towards the suspects responsible? we understand there's a no fly zone in place at benghazi airport. can you tell us more about that. >> any attempts by perpetrators. >> reporter: now the u.s. state department has released the names of the four men killed in the attack at the consulate in addition to the u.s. ambassador christopher stevens and sean smith. they confirmed the deaths of tyrone woods a former navy s.e.a.l. who served multiple tours of duty in iraq and afghanistan and glenn dougherty. >> secretary
is in benghazi. >> reporter: this is the first thing fahud says he saw and filmed at the consulate compound. the cafeteria building up in flames. it was shortly before midnight september 11th. the smoke so thick the compound's main house is barely visible. and then this. after breaking through window men shout they found a body. suddenly one of them cries out, he's alive, he's alive. the crowd cheers. god is great. rushing for a car, they realize it's a foreigner. i was filming the video and i thought it was an american, fahed recalls, but i thought it was a driver or security guy. i never thought it was the ambassador. it's clear from the rest of the video that the man they pulled out was ambassador christopher stevens. fahed says he was alive but barely. he had a pulse and his eyes were moving, fahed says. his mouth was black from all the smoke. ten minutes later rushed through the benghazi streets in a civilian's car, the ambassador arrived at the hospital. but it was too late. this doctor tells us he got a code blue call. patient arrested. needs resuscitation. he too did not realize it
of their bag of tactics to come at us, i think is still an open question. >> [inaudible] your sense of benghazi now, and a couple of things i want to discuss. was there discussion of putting marines at the compound to help secure it? what is your assessment and analysis of al qaeda and affiliate's or inspired organizations, their ability to assemble and generate an attack capability of this sort very rapidly? and for the united states to openly have no sense that it needed to provide the security to meet that potential threat. what does it say to you about al qaeda abilities in that region? >> first of all, with regards to benghazi, we responded to a request to provide a fast team to go into tripoli and provide additional security there, and we responded to that. at that point, for all intents and purposes, benghazi had been pretty much unoccupied by any of the diplomatic and other security personnel that were there. the main focus then was on tripoli and the embassy in tripoli, and that is what we responded to. with regards to al qaeda and its efforts in that area, i think it is fair to say th
said today we had no actual intelligence that an attack on our post in benghazi was planned or imminent. two questions, first of all, they said benghazi. they had some warning for egypt. what does the actual intelligence mean? >> when you are in a threatened environment and the ambassador goes outside the compound, especially in benghazi, that has been a source of recruiting for al-qaeda for some time, extra caution should have been taken. one should argue at a dangerous place on 9/11 he doesn't go out at all. but the tragedy that four people are dead, it doesn't matter what the excuse is beforehand, there was a massive failure here. >> let's go back to my earlier point. why do you need a warning when you are in a place where there are extremists that don't like americans, and whatever purpose and he was heartless in libya, it was so obvious people didn't want us here. islamic extremists don't want us there, they want their law. >> unless you think everyone is fine. and you think things are going well in the middle east. but if your notion is that the war on terrorism is over and we've
. >> we hear from you fully about your -- benghazi right now and a couple of specifics i want to ask you. was there ever any discussion, after the benghazi attack, of putting marines at the compound in benghazi to help secure it? and what is your assessment and analysis of al qaeda and al qaeda affiliates or inspired organizations there, their ability to assemble and generate an attack capability of this sort very rapidly, and for the united states to openly have no sense that it needed to provide the security to meet that potential threat? what does it say to you about al qaeda related groups in that region? >> okay. first of all with regards to benghazi, what we, what we responded to was a request to provide a f.a.s.t. team that would go into tripoli and try to provide additional security there and we responded to that and did that. at that point, for all intents and purposes, benghazi had been, you know, pretty much unoccupied by any of the diplomatic and, other security personnel that were there. so, the main focus then was on tripoli and the embassy in tripoli and that's what we res
, the u.s. is sending fbi special investigators to benghazi to help in determining the cause of the attack, and who else may have been involved in it. now, for their part, the u.s. embassy has received some reinforcements. at least 50 marines have arrived and have now taken up positions here in the capital. we also understand that at least two u.s. navy warships have been deployed off the coast of libya, and the government here has pledged to the united states that it will cooperate with the investigation, and help in trying to bring the perpetrators of this attack to justice. nbc news, tripoli. >>> and the violent anti-american protests have spread from tunisia to indonesia. the crisis is growing, and it is becoming a larger factor in the race for the white house. steve handelsman is on capitol hill now with more on this. >> reporter: wendy, good evening. candidate paul ryan implied today this wouldn't be happening if mitt romney were in the white house. for his part today, president obama took a hard line. as anti-american rioting spread through the muslim world, president obama was on h
the search for whoever attacked the u.s. consulate in benghazi. four americans were killed as you know in tuesday's attack including the u.s. ambassador to libya chris stevens. investigators say if the violence was carried out by a specific group or if it was planned they can't say yet, that's why they are investigating. according to reports out oof libya, four people have already been arrested for these attacks. meanwhile, it was a heart breaking tribute for those four americans who lost their lives in the libyan attacks. >> we welcome home for the final time ambassador chris stevens. mr. sean smith, mr. glen doherty and mr. tyrone woods. >> president obama took part in the transfer of remains ceremony at andrews air force base yesterday along with vice president biden and secretary of state hillary clinton. he spoke of the ultimate sacrifice made for our country. >> they had a mission. and they believed in it. they knew the danger and they accepted it. they didn't simply embrace the american ideal. they lived it. >> the president also vowed to bring those responsible to justice. and
. chris went to benghazi in the early days of the libyan revolution, a riding on a cargo ship. as america's representative, we helped the libyan people. as they cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision in which the rights of all libyans would be respected. libyans held elections and built new institutions. and began to move forward after decades of dictatorship. chris stevens loved his work. he took pride in the country he served. he saw dignity in the people that he met. two weeks ago he traveled to benghazi to review plans to establish a new cultural center and modernize a hospital. that is one of america's compound came under attack. along with three of his colleagues, chris was killed, in the city he helped save. he was 52 years old. i tell you this story because chris stevens embodied the best of america. like his fellow foreign service officers, he build bridges across cultures and was deeply invested in the international cooperation that the united nations represents. he acted with humility but also stood up for a set of principles, a belief that individuals should be free to de
director of national intelligence to explain why the fbi has want been able to make it in to benghazi safely. >> reporter: the fbi is worried about security in benghazi, conducting their investigation and interviews in tripoli, 400 mile away from the scene of the attack. senator bob corker of the senate foreign relations committee wants to know why. he fired off a letter to james clapper, demanding answer, saying, in part, just ab days ago, the administration apparently judged it was appropriate for our consulate to be lightly guarded and it was safe for our embassador -- ambationz dorto come through the city with a small security de tail. what has changed in libya in such a short time that even fbi agents, our most elite personnel cannot safely enter the city? the consulate didn't have the standard marine guard. there are calls for the resignation of u.n. bambass dorsusan rice who, said that it appeared to be a spontaneous uprising against an anti-muslim video. >> five days went by. we have reports that intelligence people knew within 24 hours that this was a terror attack, yet, the
, it is calmer -- benghazi. and before admissions here. and around key government installations. security building. we have seen an uncrease in security there. and a lot of concern that there might be more attacks carried out by the militant groups. whether this attack was preplanned to happen on third baseman or was it just a protest over the amateur video that got out of hand. >>> when the news broke, we were speaking to witnesses in benghazi and it was a protest that became violent. it is getting clearer and clearer. and we are hearing the same thing here in libya from government officials that this is most likely a preplanned attack carried out by islamic extremist groups. they may have used the protest as a diversion or a cover up for their actual plans to attack the consulate yesterday from the libyan speaker of parliament. addressing the world. saying they will not allow libya to be used by the militant groups to carry out what he calls revenge attacks and that they did occur and coincide with the anniversary of september 1 1-rd and hinted that it was carried out by islamic extremi
, arrogant and unjustice administration. stevens and three others were killed last week in benghazi during protests over that film. today 12 more people were killed in association with that film apparently. this latest attack happened in afghanistan. a suicide bomber slammed a car packed with explosives in a van on the road that leads to kabul airport. a group with ties to the taliban is claiming responsibility. anna coren is kabul and joins us live. first off the fact that this suicide bomber was a female driving a car is rare. often women aren't allowed to drive in afghanistan. i wonder if that shows a change, a shift in tactics. also give us details to the attack. eight victims were south africans. >> reporter: yeah, that's exactly right, poppy. i think you are spot on. there is a change of tactics that is going on here in afghanistan. certainly seeing much more violence. you mentioned that suicide bomber, 22-year-old woman, she's in fact kabul's first female suicide bomber. there have been other female suicide bombers around the country but never in the capital. she was driving a car p
for the state department and for her country. we've seen that heavy assault on our post in benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. we've seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful internet video that we have nothing to do with. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that because it is senseless and it is totally unacceptable. the people of egypt, libya, yemen and tunisia did not trade the tyranny of the tape trader for the tyranny of a mob. reasonable people and responsible leaders in these countries need to do everything they can to restore security and hold accountable those behind these violent acts. and we will, under the president's leadership, keep taking steps to protect our personnel around the world. there will be more difficult days ahead, but it is important that we don't lose sight of the fundamental facts that america must keep leading the world. we owe it to those four men to continue the long, hard work of diplomacy. i am enormously proud of the men and women of the state department. i am proud of all those across our government, c
and three other americans killed in an attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, arriving at andrews air force base in maryland. u.s. officials are investigating whether the assault was a terrorist attack that seized to the presses in the arab world over an anti- muslim video. >> chris stevens was everything america could want in an ambassador, as the whole country has come to see. >> reporter: a radical islamic group is the leading suspect in the attacks. at least four people have been taken into custody in connection with the attacks. top libyan officials believe the attack on the u.s. embassy was premeditated and highly organized. >> this was a deliberate and preplanned attack in every sense of the word. >> reporter: demonstrationed sparked by the anti-islamic film said to denigrate the prophet muhammad spreading to nearly 20 countries and the west bank, among them yemen, afghanistan, great grain and india. security force -- great britain and india. security forces opening fire in libya killing at least one person. egyptian officials clashing with the groups in cairo. israeli of
and infiltrating libya's security apparatus. in benghazi there have been more than a dozen assassinations of former military officers. sources tell cnn that many of them were reportedly on a islamist hit list to eliminate qualified individuals that could pose a threat. kernel from the lyan army was recently kidnapped. he doesn't know by whom or exactly why. he got a call from a man who spoke as if he knew him and said he had urgent information to pass on. outside his home, in broad daylight, two masked man forced him into their car. when i got into the car, they put a black hood on my head and began seeing things like you're going to see, threatening me, he tells us. later he says he was forced to his knees and told to repent and renew his faith in islam. he thought he was going to die when the phone rang. i could hear someone say, he's alive. we haven't killed him yet. you could hear his voice, he recalls. and then he was free. the influence of these radical groups has emerged in the capital. last month they destroyed shrines including this one, right in the heart of tripoli. >> as the sha rien wa

at the benghazi consulate?" you pick up "the new york times" and you get a blow-by-blow description of what supposedly went o. so it was like pulling teeth to get information yesterday. a lot of senators were frustrated. and you pick up major newspapers in the country and you find details not shared with you. and one of the things i'm worried about is we're trying to find out who committed these terrible acts of terrorism -- and they were acts of terrorism, not a spontaneous riot -- i said, what is the game plan? will they be held as enemy exatents, are they going to be held as common criminals? will they be prosecuted in libya? will they be brought back to the united states? do you have to read them their miranda rights? really absolutely not a whole lot of information. but at the end of the day, it was a lost opportunity i think to inform the congress. can we now move to the rand paul amendment? mr. mccain: mr. president, i'd like to take what remaining time we have in order to discuss the paul amendment. and i'd like to begin by asking insertion in the -- in the "congressional record" a

in benghazi. some military officials telling us they warned the u.s. about the growing threat of extremism as it does exist, especially in the eastern part of the country. as recently as three days before the attack took place. many of the ground right now questioning whether or not the u.s. grossly underestimated the threat level against it, all the while many also saying that it was the libyan government's possibility to a certain degree to have created more security around the compound itself. and so, many are saying that the blame lies with both sides. but at the end of the day this most certainly is not the path that those that launched the regime wanted to' the country move down. >> what are you seeing now? any protests? seeing any demonstrations? >> reporter: there was. we are hearing a candle lit vigil in front of the consulate itself carried out by children, women. libyans want the world to know that this act of violence against the u.s. is by no way, shape or form representative of the libyan mind-set as a whole. they're shocked and appalled of what took place and there's video t
that happened in benghazi, biden said something has gone to happen in the middle east. and also, he went over there in the middle of august. so, does anybody else not see any correlation there to what is going on? about the cover-up? thank you. host: where caller: do see a: they do not tell the truth -- host: where do you see the cover up? guest: they do not tell the truth. they are killing people. diplomats. and also, here they are, covering up everything. and there will not tell the truth that it was a terrorist attack and there are terrorists all around the world. and if people cannot see that, we are not safe. this president has done nothing to keep us safe, except he killed bin laden, big deal, he used bush's people. he has not created any jobs that you can see. there are 23 million americans still without employment. why would anyone want to vote for him again. host: on our line for democrats. caller: good morning. i just want to talk about voter suppression and a voter id, that kind of stuff that is going on. with as a voter suppression. it makes voter id a major issue. and i hear it a
